Discussion in 'Muppet Headlines' started by wembleyfraggle, Nov 24, 2009.
Some other sites are reporting that it'll be released on the 14th (which would be Tuesday).
I was wondering the same thing. And what about the Sesame Street performers and some of the other performers from other Henson shows?
By the way, since everyone is speaking about Clifford, I would like to see him come back with the other muppets. However, Clash is too busy doing the show "Elmo and Company"......I mean Sesame Street.
Hey don't knock Kevin Clash for being to busy with Sesame, he is doing a wonderful job over there, and is really what the show needs. I know a lot of people do a lot of Elmo bashing and it trinkles down to Kevin as well. Read his book and you will learn and grow to not only love Elmo, but also appreate him.
There is no way you can compare The first season of the Muppet Show and the first Season of Muppets Tonight. they where to very different shows, with some of the same elements.
There was a lot of what do we do know after Jim passed, and I think that Muppets Tonight was one of thouse things. The writers (who one of I'm friends with) Where not trying to bring back the Muppet Show and all it's glory. They where trying and doing a good job of intorducing some new Muppets along side the classic Muppets. The same as with the Jim Henson hour, and I think that is what hurt both shows. There should have been more classic Muppets and slowly bring in the newer ones.
As far as Cliford not being well rounded by the time Muppets Tonight was filiming and airing Elmo was gaining a whole lot of popularity, and if the show had keep going they would have had to change things anyways beacuse Kevin was going to have to do more at Sesame.
I miss Clifford He was one of the earliest Muppets I was introduced to (via the "It's Not Easy Being Green" sing-along video )
I made some posters to advertise buying the single once it's released. Feel free to use them on your own blogs, Facebooks, or wherevers. They are all available at the bottom of this post:
That's the half of the parodies that work... personally, I'm talking about Bay of Pigs Watch... Deep Dish 9... stuff like that... recurring skits. I think Seinfeld Babies was one of the funniest things I've ever seen. Actually... most of the stuff with the pigs stunk anyway. Other than Piggy, they were all flat. Andy and Randy actually showed some sort of character in the John Goodman episode, but other than that, they were just as bad as late seasons Bebop and Rocksteady. They were the "Dumb" characters and nothing more.
What really bugs me as far as recurring sketches go, the BEST ones were UK only skits. I really liked the Howard Tubbman stuff and the Clueless Morgan/Polly Lobster segment. I especially love the Tales from the Vet... can't remember if we saw that in the US or not...
The funny thing is if you watch the MT! episodes in production order, you can see the smoother attempt at showing more of the classic characters at the beginning and more gradually working in the newer ones - but with the episodes being broadcast in a more random order, the new characters seemed forced and shoved onto people too quickly.
The stuff that was in the UK material was awesome and i have no doubt we will see a complete dvd box set of MT! (with the full episodes) come out - but it won't be next year; it would be after all five seasons of TMS have been released (this has been a plan pretty much since they started the TMS box sets). Tales from the Vet was seen in the US and Phil van Neuter remains one of my all time fave characters!
I'm excited for all those who wanted to see Bohemian Rhapsody released as a single and have campaigned for it and all but myself personally, i just can't get that excited about it being download-only and not have any kind of physical release. That's going to hurt its chances of being a Christmas #1. As cool as the video is, the track does lose quite a bit in an audio-only format (it still works but you still miss out on much of the humor) still i would FLOVE hearing this played on the Dr. Demento Show (but then again i'd love to hear the Dr. Demento Show again PERIOD as it's been off of Phoenix radio stations for was too long now).
We are officially over 10,000,000 views! This is such a wonderful thing! Congratulations to ALL involved at The Muppets Studio. You've really outdone yourself with this one--you've created the new standard by which everything else will be measured up to. And what a standard it is!
"Is this the real life? Is this just fantasy?"
10 Million views? Wow, if this isn't a sign that we need a new TV show and are ready for a new movie, I don't know what would be.
Just thought I'd throw this out there, but Muppets Bohemian Rhapsody is still the #1 most viewed video of the month (by about 4.5 million). Hopefully we can keep it there for some time!
Its listed on amazon with a Sunday 13th Dec release date
Its already up for pre order, it looks as though it could be UK only! The artwork for the single has the opening scene of Gonzo with three chickens!
Is this going to be a real cd?
When I run the link nothig show up on the Amazon page
Try using this link - it worked for me:
Or, you can just search Muppet Bohemian Rhapsody on Amazon and it will come up. It is listed in pounds on the UK website, so appears to be UK only, at least for now. I think it releases Dec 13. Lucky bastar**!
I think this is another one of those "virmup" videos (which I find quite interesting). Not only that, this is probably the most popular one based on the number of YouTube video views. I first saw this very shortly after it came out on YT and was absolutely stunned. Go Muppets!
Thank you that worked.
I'm SO excited that the BoRhap has joined the battle to get to #1! Of course I'm slightly worried that it's only available to buy in the UK, but I have FAITH! (I also have faith that the X-factor song will be ridiculously unpopular after this years shenanigans).
I'm waiting to get it on iTunes Sunday or Monday!
do we know for sure it is only in the UK
well its 2.15am, I have just downloaded it from amazon. I love it. it sounds different as an MP3.
Does it sound better?
